    Brian,
    Trying to create the perfect vision statement but I am not sure I am getting it right. This is what I have so far:

    I live a loving life which is evident because I smile, I have confidence, even Spiritual Confidence, the Spirit is my companion and I am worthy of sacred experiences. I am worthy to be married to the most beautiful woman in the world. I am eager to start each day with clarity and focus for the now. I have a deep genuine love for my Savior my beautiful wife, my amazing family and for all of God’s children.

    Any suggestions?

      I think it’s a beautiful vision. Here is what I like about it:

      1. It captures the top positive consequences of living a loving life: “I have a deep and genuine love for my Savior, my beautiful wife, my amazing family and for all of God’s children.” Increased capacity to love and increased love for all are definitely consequences of living a loving life. “I have confidence, even Spiritual Confidence…” is also a key positive consequence as is being worthy, having clarity and focus for now.
      2. Use of emotion-evoking words and phrases, like smile, confidence, Spirit is my companion, sacred experiences, most beautiful woman (when living a loving life, spouses truly appear more beautiful), eager, amazing and genuine love.

      To give it more power, you may want to consider adding more tangibility, or words that paint a clear picture in your mind. You can do this by asking the questions, “What does spiritual confidence look like?” “What comes to mind when I think of sacred experiences?” “What scenario in my mind (place, background?) would depict deep genuine love for my wife and family?” For example, you could add a phrase after “sacred experiences,” like the following, “such as receiving God’s confirming direction for my career” or “shown by acting on direct inspiration to provide Godly comfort to my wife and children.” You could also consider adding a phrase after “confidence” that paints a picture of what that looks like, such as “shown by my boldly sharing stories, experiences and ideas with colleagues at work” or something like that.

      Loving lifers have also had success describing a favorite family place, sometimes just the family room sofa, where they can see themselves playing with their wife and kids with smiles all around. So, adding a phrase after “deep, genuine love for my Savior, my beautiful wife, my amazing family, and for all of God’s children” such as “seeing all of us playing kickball in the backyard in a loving, laughing, getting-close-to-each-other way.”

      One caution about the use of the word “worthy.” Some people like to softly interpret that word as “perfect.” It also may not be as tangible as alternatives. Based upon your vision, I can tell you know you’re reliant on the Savior for worthiness so it should be OK, but you may want to consider removing the word worthy and just state “I have sacred experiences” and “My beautiful wife and I have a strong, intimate (as long as the words “strong” and “intimate” are words that paint a picture in your mind) relationship in marriage.” This implies worthiness but makes the benefit a little more real. Not a big deal, but just a thought.

      Overall, I like your vision a lot and how you’ve captured some key consequences of living a loving life, including the increased access to the Spirit and spirituality in general, as well as increased love and deeper relationships.
